How do I heal a blister that has been there for 1 month? (photo)Skin, Hair & Nails
I am a 22 years old female. A hair straightener scalded my thumb, and it subsequently formed a blister. It has been there for 1 month, and sometimes it bursts and bleeds when I accidentally tear the skin. How do I heal my wound? Thank you.
Thank you for your question. It is difficult to tell clearly from the photograph, but it does appear that there may be some vascular proliferation of blood vessel beneath the blister. There may be an underlying pyogenic granuloma that needs to be treated.
Simple traumatic blisters usually heal in 1 to 2 weeks. I suggest that you see your doctor or dermatologist to get this properly assessed.
